Just as your student’s college experience continues beyond O-Week, there are ways for parents and family members to stay involved in the Rice community. Below are some of the ways that currently exist though more are being developed each year to better engage parents and family members in their student’s educational journey.
Each fall, Rice invites parents and family members of current students to campus for a taste of life at the University. This is a perfect opportunity for you to spend time with your student, learn a bit more about daily life at Rice, and get to know other Rice parents and family members. This year, the university is assessing whether events like Families Weekend will take place on campus or virtually. Please visit the official Families Weekend website for more information.
If you are not receiving the quarterly Parents and Families Newsletter, please send us your preferred contact information by emailing email@example.com with your name, email, student name and student class year.
